Our treatments - The Bowen Technique Treatment

The Bowen Technique Treatment

The Bowen Technique is suitable for everyone, from the tiniest of babies, to athletes and the frailest of adults. It looks at restoring balance to the body by a series of very gentle rolling type moves made with the therapist's fingers and thumbs over precise areas of the body. A unique feature of the Bowen Treatment is that after a series of moves the therapist leaves the room for a couple of minutes. This prompts the body to reset, repair and re-balance itself.

The Bowen Technique does not rely on hard pressure, it is a very light touch therapy and there is no twisting, bending or awkward repositioning of the client during treatment. It can also be performed through light clothing.

A key element of the Bowen Technique is that we work holistically and do not treat a specific condition but look at the person as a whole.

The Actual Bowen Treatment

With Bowen Technique, I am happy to work either directly onto skin or through light clothing.

The first session will consist of a consultation during which I will take notes about you, your lifestyle, conduct any assessments required and then carry out a Bowen Therapy. Treatments are normally about an hour. Every person is unique and therefore treatments and times are tailored to the individual.

An initial course of three treatments is recommended to see how the client responds to treatment. Some clients will experience instant pain relief, whereas with others the body may respond over the next few days, but normally even chronic conditions will see relief with an initial set of three treatments.

It is recommended that clients are receiving no other physical therapies whilst being treated with the Bowen Technique.
